53 cavalier radiator shroud bolts

Post by Coach Js » Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:02 am

I am missing some bolts on my radiator shroud. I would like to, at least, fill in the missing bolts. Or, replace them all so the match. Apparently these are not a common size, as there were none at the hardware store that would work as a replacement. Where can I purchase some?

Hi Dave. Went to a few parts stores and body shops. Didn't get an exact match. But all the bolts are the same and everything fits tightly together. Adjusted the latches on the hood and shroud, and it closes and releases nicely.

Car won't ever be perfect. But, I'm happy with the progress and can't wait for the roads to be free of salt. Im itching to get her out there.
